Christmas in July!

These two Christmas cards are made with the new Cut Above kits, available August 1st.  Everything is cut and ready for you to create 10 5x7 cards with matching envelopes.  To complete them, you will also need the coordinating stamp set (Merriest Christmas B1468) the appropriate acrylic block, ink and adhesives.  I made all 20 cards in about 3 hours (in between doing the laundry) and couldn't be happier with them! They are so cute!

These card kits are two of the four Cut Above Card Kits offered in the new 2014-2015 Annual Inspirations.
August 1st is the day that this new Catalog and Idea Book will be live on my webpage, www.suebruch.ctmh.com.  You will love what you see!

More Timberline

Head to your stash!

Here I used scraps of the Timberline papers (Scroll down to see all the papers in the packet) and scraps of retired paper and odds and ends of embellishments.  I always get a sense of satisfaction when I can use up products.  Take a look at your stash and see what you can come up with!

Remember, Timberline, along with all the current patterned papers will be expiring July 31.  Come August 1, the new Annual Inspirations catalog will be live on my website, www.suebruch.ctmh.com. Be watching my blog later this month for some sneak peaks!

Balloon Ride!

Here is another paper packet that will be retiring in just a couple weeks!  It is so pretty...soft pastels that will complement your baby, little (and big) girl and even travel pictures.  Be sure to check out the Balloon Ride Picture My Life cards that will simplify your scrapbooking in the most beautiful way!
Balloon Ride Paper Packet X7180B
Picture My Life Scrapbooking Program Z1948

   This card  features the B&T print with balloons.  I used the zip strip on the vertical piece and added Bronze Shimmer Trim Z1849 and a sentiment stamped with Joyful Birthday Occasions B1419.  Design inspiration is from Pinterest, but unfortunately, I was unable to locate the name of the designer to give appropriate credit. 
 I love this layout.  All the papers are from the Balloon Ride packet, but I ventured out and used embellishments I spied at Archivers before the doors closed.  I love my CTMH, but once in awhile I find things that just add something special to my projects.  The title was cut with my Gazelle machine using the Grand Hotel font.  I downloaded it free from the internet. Design credit goes to Becky Higgins, Creative Sketches, Volume 2.
So here's your challenge:  Pick out a Close to My Heart paper packet that complements your photos and then invade your stash (I know you have one!) of embellishments you have collected and create something fabulous!
'Til later,
